BEHOLD!

I am Raizer04 and this is my instructable worklog pertaining to my created playstation 2 portable the KNIGHT RAIZER.

So your thinking..."well why not just use psp?"....well my answer to that is the psp has horrible emulation, especially with the ps2 emulator! But thats not all. I needed a way to set myself aside from other modders. What could i do to put this to the next level. REMOVE THE DISC DRIVE. That is right....this portable ps2 relies solely on a thumb drive with the games (ISO) saved on there! This means i can upload any of my backupgames via thumb drive and have no framerate issues since an entire ps2 is all in one case! So we will begin this journey from case-making to finish product.

YAH,I BUILT ONE OF THESE EXCEPT,IT DOES NOT USE A PSone screen,I HATE THE CIRCULAR SHAPE,IF YOU WANT TO PUT A MORE ATTRACTIVE SCREEN,I SUGGEST YOU USE TFT CAR MONITERS,FIND A SUITABLE ONE WITH WHICH YOU CAN ADJUST VOLUME AND CONTRAST,U CONECT THEM THE SAME WAY AS THE PSone screen

I want to make this project. but i dont want to gut my ps2 cuz i play ddr on it. I suggest making a controller port for it and modding a controller to work with ddr and make a controller with the arrows and everything! I support u!
You bought a laser Doodle means you are a child
Instructables has a be nice policy.... be constructive and positive please. He used the laser doodle for the casing to build this awesome project.

i had a laserdoodle... the beeping was really annoying so i sold it...
you should do this with a wii! XD
Wii has motion controllers. It would never work out so well as portable
It's not portable because it runs on electricity, not the battery. PSP runs on battery

is it possible to make the LCD raise up and reveal a disc slot? i understand that i would be thicker, but my friend wants to use his discs...
Is it possible to make this on the fat version of the PS2?

How hard would it be to have a removable disc drive mount to the rear of this mod and plug in when CDs are wanted to be used?
zack2473 years ago
to be honest i was more interested in the software used to run the games without a CD, can you get a app or something that allows to play music too?
How do you use the L1-L2,R1-R2 buttons? Did you relocate the push button switches?
If this is easy enough to make a portable playstion2 with ps2 capable gameplay and graphics, why does the psp direct from sony suck so much?!

raizer04 (author) 3 years ago
Thanks everyone! I tried to put a twist on there so that it set itself apart from any other mods!
